We're the "Best Place to Find Yourself on Horseback" according to Hawaii Magazine's 2008 "Best of Hawaii" - and they should know! Ride our beautiful horses through lush, exotic valleys, ironwood forests, and pineapple fields, while enjoying spectacular panoramic views of the outer islands! Nestled in the midst of unspoiled mountains, rain forests and farmland, Ironwood Ranch sits on acres of private land inaccessible to most, but ready and waiting for you to explore!

We have tried other horseback rising excursions on Maui however this one is the best value. For $90 per person it is the lowest cost of all the alternatives. We had previously been at Lahaina Stables and Mendes Ranch but this is the best bang...More

Jean and Chris were great. Our daughter wanted to go there for her 11th birthday. She and my 12 year old son enjoyed it. Nice "day off" from beach sun. Well-mannered horses, almost jungle-path.

Great place for a casual ride. We were asked if we were experienced riders. The definition of an experienced rider to Ironwoods was 150 times on a horse. Needless to say we were then not experienced . Had a really nice time

This was our second trip back to the Ironwood ranch stables. Gina and her crew do an amazing job. They select horses to your experience with riding and make sure you are comfortable with the horse. The trails are manicured making it easy to enjoy...More

Any guidance on which of the trail rides to do with a family of four? All of us are novice riders except our 7 year old equestrian ; )

Response from Aggie91Dad | Reviewed this property |
We were pretty much the same scenario; our 7 yr old was the "equestrian". There was only one trail ride available when we went and I don't think it's going to be that different of an experience no matter which one you... More
I'm interested in booking but wanted to know if experienced riders can trot or canter sometime on the trail?

No, you can not
My husband and I are interested in booking this during our stay this week. Now we believe his weight should be fine based on the last time he weighed himself, which was recent. Do you simply provide the height and weight or do they weigh you with their own scale?

Response from Jeneen S | Reviewed this property |
If your husband's weight is close to the max limit (220lbs I believe), they will weigh him when you arrive. Their priority is the safety of the horses.
